Bunk Buds

We've felt for a while now that the kids could handle living in the same room.  They're both great sleepers, and N hangs out in E's room quite a bit anyhow.  So off to IKEA for the $149 special!  This bunk set is awesome, and so so sturdy.  E can practically do somersaults on the top and it doesn't squeak or even shake!  With a little bit of resistance we got through the first night (tho an extra early and giggly wake up call at 4:45am), and ever since it's been smooth sailing!  N's nap is a smidgen tricky.  Today I went in to check on him and found he had removed the entire contents of E dresser on the floor before crawling back into bed and falling asleep like an angel...All in all though, a plus.  We've claimed N's old room back as our office/guest room/school room, and it just feels like we have more space now.  And E loves showing it off to anyone who might be stopping by.


  1. What a great transition! That is the same IKEA bunk bed we had for the boys for YEARS- they just recently wanted their own twins (still in the same room) but that is a great bed. Wow, Nils is such a big boy to be in a bed already- I bet he loves being in the same room with Ella :) Great that you have the office back!

  2. Oh, that should be fun. And way to put the old man to work on the assembly of the unit!

  3. we'll pop by with the kids are better!
